ABC Scripture Challenge -D-

Hi Stamping and (digi) Scrapping Friends!!
Today I have an 8x8 digital scrapbook page that was created using My Digital Studio.  I've been participating in an ABC Scripture Challenge hosted by Patter Cross on her blog: Triple the Scraps.  The letter for today is -D- for DELIGHT.  Patter writes, "Is your delight God and His Word?  Where are you seeking counsel---friends or His Word?  And do you know that God delights in you too?  He delights in us as we read His Word and obey it, when we follow Him, glorify Him, etc.  Zephaniah 3:17 says, "The Lord your God is with you.  He is mighty enough to save you.  He will take great delight in you.  The quietness of His love will calm you down.  He will sing with joy because of you." 

What a great verse!!!  The thought that I can bring delight to God amazes me.  I was so excited to see that Patter had chosen the word DELIGHT for this challenge.  You know how pastors and Christian speakers and authors are always encouraging you to choose a "life verse"?  Well, it just so happens that one of my "life verses" uses the word delight!!!

When I was 12 years old, I started babysitting for a family at our church.  They were so kind to me.  I babysat for them when they had 2 children and then 3 children and until they finally moved away when I was about 16.  I was extremely shy back then, and when they would drive me home after I babysat, they would pour encouragement into my life.  They were the first ones to share Psalm 37:4 with me.  And when the moved, they gave me a plaque that had that verse written on it.  I cherished it for many years.  Who knows, my mom may still even have it in a box somewhere!  It was a verse that got me through many trials and heartaches of the growing up years of high school and college.  It still brings me hope even now.  Knowing that God has good things planned for me, if I keep seeking after His own heart, and not my own.  What a blessing.  The other verse I found using BibleGateway, my favorite online Bible resource.  Look for any verse, in any translation.  Or do like me, just search the whole Bible for certain words.  It is such an easy to use reference.

ETA: I receive a daily devotion in my email box from Proverbs 31 Ministiries.  Today's devotion was so perfect for the challenge of DELIGHT, that I just had to add it!  Enjoy!

I just love these pages you've done for this Krystal. I am a bit slow however, I just realized y'all aren't too far into this. I just checked out patter's blog about it, and plan to follow along. Not sure about getting the pages done, but even if I don't do that, the study is great.
